Host club records good results at life saving branch series

THE Wide Bay Capricorn Branch Premiership Surf Life Saving Series 2 was held at Agnes Water last Saturday.

Despite the sweltering conditions, the crowd enjoyed the competition.

Competitors came from far and wide to compete in the series, including some from Emu Park, Moore Park and Mackay.

Three competitors from the host club recorded good results.

Agnes Water Surf Lifesaving Club president Ernie Vaughan said once again his club's members had had a great competition at Agnes.

"This Premiership Series is really good for getting the competitors ready for branch (competition)," Vaughn said.

And with that competition to be held in January, it was valuable preparation.

Cody Carmichael represented Agnes Water in the under-19 beach sprint, winning it in convincing style.

Harrison Madge competed in the under-17 age group, winning the beach flags and taking a third in the beach sprint.

Harrison had a huge improvement on the board, coming fourth in that race. In this series, numbers doubled in Vaughn's 40-49 years age group.

He competed in the beach flags and beach sprint, coming sixth in flags and seventh in sprints.

Vaughn, Cody and Harrison were joined by Josh from Yeppoon for the open beach relay.

The Agnes team came second despite a baton mishap.
